It is what it is what it is what it is.

While flying over cold terrain we saw a frozen river, and realized that time had stopped. It had not ceased in our immediate proximity, but instead much farther below us. Evidence was no more acute than in the river. It was still. The frozen curls of white water just sat suggestive of a time just before we had left the ground. It had halted on its own accord, but looked as if it were only an instant away from resuming once again; pushing onward and over-ward and under-ward, folding and reintegrating back into Itself. For now it stood stiff for our inspection. We began to look around the cabin of the plane at one another, exchanging expressions of confusion. Could this really be? Were all things motionless but the tens of us up here in the sky? We confirmed and reconfirmed with the river. We were suddenly humbled, honored by the realization that all of you in the middle of your busy lives would wait.

Come see the things that really are what they seem to be.

Born in 1988 Kyle Hossli is an artist who lives and works in The Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts. He recently earned an MFA from the University of Chicago.
